Chuck Todd Announces Luke Russert as ‘Meet the Press’ Regular Contributor

s-LUKERUSSERT-largeNBC “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd this afternoon emailed colleagues to confirm that Luke Russert will join the program – that his late-father Tim Russert hosted for 17 years – as a regular contributor. He’ll contribute both on Sundays and online throughout the week.

“Luke has an impressive love for politics and has proven himself on the Capitol Hill beat,” wrote Todd and acting executive producer John Reiss to “MTP” staff. “He’ll continue in his current role reporting for the network and MSNBC, but he’ll also branch out to take on new projects specifically for us.”

Russert joins “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough, BuzzFeed’s Washington bureau chief John Stanton, and WaPo’s Nia-Malika Henderson as regular “MTP” contributors.

In an email to FishbowlDC, NBC again reaffirmed that rumors Russert was given a $500,000 bonus for joining the program are untrue.

summersuperlatives(main)

Last week we announced nominees in FishbowlDC’s 2014 Summer Superlatives in three categories Hottest TV Personality, Most in Need of a Reality Show, and Future/Former Boy Band Members.

Before we announce Round 2 of 3, we’re here with an update of where things stand in the final 72 hours of the first round of the competition.

For much of last week, CNN’s Jake Tapper and Brianna Keilar were neck and neck for first place in the Hottest TV Personality category. FOX 5′s Steve Chenevey has since taken the top spot with 34.32% of the category votes. Also in the running: FOX News’ Bret Baier and NBC Washington’s Angie Goff and Eun Yang. One thing we’ve learned, it is fun to pit persons from the same network against each other.

New to the superlatives competition is this year’s Future/Former Boy Band Members category. Leading is The Hill’s Kevin Cirilli, previously with POLITICO, who has more than 50% of the votes. In second with nearly a quarter of the support is CNN cutie Peter Morris. Also nominated, NBC Washington’s David Culver, WJLA’s Kevin Lewis and Scott Thuman, and The Atlantic’s James Hamblin.

Rounding out Round 1 of voting is the ever-important superlative for Most in Need of a Reality Show. In it, there’s 6 great contenders, including POLITICO’s Big Money author Ken Vogel with nearly half the votes thus far. BuzzFeed’s John Stanton and ESPN’s Britt McHenry are in a close second and third, respectively, along with Pamela Sorensen, of Pamela’s Punch, the “Reliable Source” ladies Helena Andrews and Emily Heil, and the Washington Life magazine touting John Arundel.
